On April 4th we welcomed my precious little niece Lydia into this world, she is our blessed little angel baby filled with love, warmth, and cute little baby noises! I absolutely adore her and I treasure our long afternoon cuddles and playtime with her big (almost 3 year old) brother Bobby. My twin sister, and Lydia's mother, Andrea of Storybook Artifact has put together the most beautiful, feminine baby nursery room for Lydia with a cozy, heirloom family quilt covered queen size bed for mama and baby to bond during their precious nursing and co-sleeping time.
Thus a proper lady's bed shall express this beautiful, feminine moment in a mother and child's lives; and paying homage to this dearest season, Andrea has fittingly placed two twin retro pin up pillows handmade by our talented Aunt Mary Lynn and capturing the colors of the nursery room. These handcrafted bed pillows depict ladies with full bosoms like a nursing mother carries for nurturing her little one the natural way. You can view more one-of-a-kind handmade retro pin up pillows here in our Aunt Mary Lynn's Etsy Shop: "LaOohLaLa Boutique".
As alluded to previously, Andrea and I both treasure handmade treasures, they are unique and often one-of-a-kind, and by purchasing them from handmade online marketplaces like Etsy.com, you are supporting cottage industries and many of them are owned by mothers, who thanks to their at-home businesses can spend more precious time with their children...and this is something that I am passionate about supporting!
Andrea and I are looking forward to the day when Etsy will open up a baby registry, similar to their wedding registry, yet Andrea creatively found a way to create a baby registry Etsy treasury, a collection of desired Etsy items for Lydia's baby nursery. Among those items, Andrea featured these cute, classic, handmade ABC flashcards with vintage children's illustrations from an alphabet book from 1939. Andrea has adhered these cards to adjacent bookshelves in the nursery. These darling handmade ABC vintage flashcards are found in the charming Etsy shop "Pretty Little Studio".
